Lucky you, TG! Our dog Sam is a pointer that we picked up from the shelter. He "loves" ducks. As in, he nearly caught himself one at the park. We've taken him out to the horses a couple times now that he actually comes to us when we call him. He dashed right behind Henny a couple times Thank the lord Henny grew up around a big pyrenees so he was already used to dogs.

The shelter dogs are the best dogs. :) Whenever we take Sam to the dog park he will run and play for hours. And then want to play for a few more hours when we get home. He has his own laundry basket of toys we keep in the living room. We tell him "Go get your toy!" and he'll go pick out whatever toy he wants and have you throw it for him haha. He will destroy a stuffed squeaker toy in 2 minutes by ripping a hole in it and pulling the stuffing out. All over the living room.

Hank has two "hollow" toys .. (kong and dogzilla) .. when I crate him in the morning, we put kibble in the toys for him in the crate..

I'll tell him "Go get me your toy." .. he'll go find and bring me one of those two .. Then I'll say "Where's your nuther toy?" .. off he goes to look for it ..

When I have both of them, I say "Now what am I going to to with THESE??" .. he bounces (and I mean 3 feet off the ground like Tigger) .. to the mud room where the kibble is.

As soon as I put kibble in them and start back out of the mud room he RUNS to the crate ..

It's our morning routine .. every weekday morning..

I have a pit bull named Zeus. He loves to have the horses chase him. They all run up and down the pasture then when everyone is tired they just stop and the horses will allow him to lay down right next to them. The donkey and he play hide and seek by chasing each other around the walk in sheds. The donkey will then go inside and zeus runs by and the donkey runs the other way.
They do not like other dogs though and my female cannot walk in the pasture without Zeus or I. Shalom

Been lurking for a while...have to post this. I am sick over this! Brand new $140 fly sheet was shredded in 3 hours. My girl has never been hard on her blankets or sheets. Any chance you think Smartpak will replace it?

Ugh.. Duren ... that sucks. Don't know if they'll replace it .. but *hugs*

That does suck! I hope they replace it, it should last longer than 3 hrs!

DBA, I have a pit, he does the same thing with my QH mare. He'll chase her for awhile, she'll chase him for awhile. If he's not in the pasture, he runs up and down the fence, she will stand there and act like she wants to kill him thru the fence. It gets funny. She did kick him once, knocked him smooth out! I thought he was a gonner, he stood up, leaned significantly to one side, and wobbled. He finally stood up straight, ran straight to the gate with a "let me out of here" attitude, when we opened the gate, he ran straight to the truck and got inside and laid down! It didn't stop him. Next time we were at the horses with him. He went right at her again. But, they play now, he never was aggressive, just chases her. He doesn't do it as much, but they still will go out there and play, chasing each other

One step closer .......

My mare, Charm, was moved today from my bff's place to the pasture where Badger is. It was uneventful, but it feels soooooo good to have her closer to home where I'll see her everyday! I'm certain Badger is happy to have company again too!
